While Abby Lee Miller’s ALDC team is busy struggling to place in the overalls on Season 5 of “Dance Moms,” former star Chloe Lukasiak has found success with a different studio. Five months after parting ways with Abby’s famed elite junior team, Chloe has joined forces with another Pennsylvania-based dance company, Studio 19 Dance Complex, and it appears to be paying off.
After expressing her excitement over her upcoming competition with her new studio on Twitter Friday, the 13-year-old reality star recently shared personal photos from the competition. “Such an amazing weekend,” Chloe posted to Instagram Saturday alongside an image of herself surrounded by her new team members. “I’m grateful for all of these wonderful people in my life. I’m beyond happy at @studio19dancecomplex.”
The dancer later shared another exclusive shot on Twitter of herself posing with her teammates in a two-piece, brightky-colored ensemble. “Loved sharing the stage with my incredible friends with weekend,” Chloe captioned the image.

As part of “Memory Monday,” Studio 19’s Facebook page also shared several photos of Chloe at the event. The images show Chloe smiling while showing off her team jacket, waiting on stage for the awards ceremony and performing a seemingly contemporary group routine.
After parting ways with “Dance Moms” in October following Abby’s alleged negative comment about her physical appearance, it appears Chloe has finally found teachers whom she admires. “Wouldn’t be anywhere without my incredible teachers,” Chloe said on Instagram, giving her coaches individual shout-outs and showering them additional praise. “Love everyone beyond words,” Chloe wrote. “Thank you for taking me into your family. You have no idea how happy you guys make me.”
According to Chloe’s mom and fellow former “Dance Moms” co-star Christi Lukasiak, Chloe’s competition with Studio 19 was a success. The reality star congratulated her daughter and her teammate on Twitter Sunday for placing first with their duet.

Chloe first revealed to “Dance Moms” fans that she was attending Studio 19 in January via her YouTube channel Chloe Lukasiak. As part of her weekly posts, she shared a behind-the-scenes look at her life at the new dance school. She later shared a video of her studio’s competition dress rehearsal, posting a sneak peek video of her team’s group number "Fiesta."
While Chloe has found success with her new studio, she has also been successful in the entertainment industry following her departure from “Dance Moms.” Earlier this month, Chicago-based musician Jess Godwin premiered her music video “Fool Me Once” which featured the former Lifetime star.
“What was so great about Chloe, that whole day of the shoot, she never stopped saying thank you. She said thank you constantly to everybody,” Godwin recently told the International Business Times of working with Chloe. “At the end of the day, this is a song that I wrote and these are struggles that I have and am still going through. I saw Chloe and she was living ‘Fool Me Once.’ She was living that pain. I’m so grateful to her that she came to be apart of it,” Godwin later added of her decision to chose Chloe for the project.
